Two crows disturb a badger's hibernation. The badger climbs out of its hole once to try to silence the crows. When that doesn't work, fate intervenes and the hill on which are the crow's tree and the badger's lair becomes an underground missile silo. The badger investigates, and events move beyond its control. Is sleep in the offing? Written by
Anyone who hits the snooze bar as much as I do can relate to this badger.
Of course, there is another level to this story of a badger who just wants to sleep, for heaven's sake, but it is told with a light, humorous touch, not an annoying alarm-clock style bleating. It approaches the topic of nuclear power from a new, refreshing, badger's eye point of view.
If you'd like to see this engaging film www.Filmporium.com is offering it for five dollars along with "Swamp," a film that depicts horses supported by balloons engaged in battle and "Nibbles" a frenetically paced family travelogue.
